>> vice president loo: you mentioned this cut from the mayor's office and you anticipate right off from the increase in the revenue. where are you going to increase the revenue? >> revenue increases will come from a number of places. they come from the increase in statewide allocations for ihss administration and for med cal administration. they also come in our alignment growth projections. just to say, alignment growth is money that comes to this agency from the state sales tax and state vehicle licensing fee. the governor projects it each
year and we actually get a standard percentage as the agency within san francisco that does social services. our projection is really based on the governor's projection. >> president serina: one of the risks that i think loom for both the state and the city is the underfunding of pension and medical cost of retirees. has the city been addressing that issue in its current and projected budgets? >> so the city is attempting to responsibly maintain its ability to fund the pension system. that continues in one of the
costs growth areas is around retiree benefits. when you sit in a room with a group of financial officers from city agencies, it's a topic that always comes up. it's a pressure on the budget. it's a pressure that the city is attempting to address in this budget. >> president serina: it's very difficult to get that number quan iquantified precisely. most state and city governments are running short in terms of the contribution. it is a concern. especially when we're growing it staff. anyway, thank you. any other comments? >> one last thing. thank you very much for this presentation and time that goes into it. it's really excellent. i don't have a lot of questions because it's so clear. thank you for that. the only thing that i saw that i
didn't hear you -- if you can do couple of minutes on position changes and it has to do with county veterans to address specialized recruitment needs. i was yours what's going on there. >> first thing i should say, we're not adding positions here. we are in your books, there's a table of reclassification. >> i do understand the difference. >> the veteran service office has been one where for a number of years, we felt like we were out of -- our classifications were out of sync with the work that veteran service officers were actually doing. between daas my personnel
department and the city personnel department, we really tried to come up with a more appropriate job description and that's what's reflected too. >> it's not -- it's read as, maybe something that was required like so many people have to have certifications and accreditations. i was more curious than anyone g else. >> i can answer the question also. [laughter] >> basically yes, the county veteran service offices are required to be certified by the state and the feds. really what we're doing in this trying to fix some inequalities within our classification.
it's really a technical change for us. >> once they are accredited positions reflect that. >> yes. they do that regardless. we've never had an issue with that. we're just trying to fix something around recruitment and retention. >> okay, thank you. >> this is an issue that has been kicking around for a few years now. i think finally we're at a place where we've got it. >> thank you very much. >> president serina: any other comments? any comments from the public? all in favor? >> aye. >> president serina: motion carries. thank you very much daniel and the department as commissioner knutzen pointed out, tremendous amount of work. you make it look simple and it isn't.

>> correct. inside othe >> commissioner knutzen: are seniors and sometimes mentors for the younger people? >> that could happen as well. kathy davis is here. she might want to explain some more of their ideas how they've been brainstorming this program. i do think it can go both ways. that's one of the things that we looked for in all the proposals was to have a two-way give and receive. >> commissioner knutzen: okay. >> good afternoon commissioners i'm kathy davis. we're really excited about doing intergenerational activities. on saturday we had had intergenerational class with young people and seniors working together to make jewelry for valentine's day. it's two-way street. the seniors learn, the kids learn and we worked with all kinds of groups already in
bayview. we're hosting our annual black lavine. there will be kids volunteering and seniors volunteering side by side. it's kind of who we are as an organization. to be able to formalize this and we have someone making those connections happen, they already happen informally. now we're able to really solidify it. we're excited about that opportunity and it's kind of great to see. i think the future of aging is that seniors aren't going to be shut away in senior centres. they need to give back to the next generation and just being around older people is really important for younger people. it goes both ways. >> commissioner knutzen: i figured that. >> i'm really excited. this like my heart. i love this stuff. it's been happening informally. it's exciting to see that we can actually create it as a program. >> president serina: thank you very much. any other comments?

isolated and lonely. the report noticed that daas clients expressed need and desire for more services to prevent social isolation. by connecting older adults with volunteers, meaningful relationships can develop and make a world of difference to someone who feels alone. lighthouse team members will recruit, screen and train volunteers. they will also screen the client participant who request visitor and conduct a home evaluation. once on the boarding process for both of the volunteer and client participant is complete, lighthouse will match clients with volunteers based on individual's interest, personality, scheduling, needs and other relevant factors to support successful pairing and promote relationship building. volunteers commit to a minimum of two visits per month for six months with each visit being at

five months and 15 visitors. it would be roughly like 30 -- at the most 30 hours for four to five months. that's about 120. it's not going to -- it hasn't started yet. we're will already in february. not all the visitors, -- there's not going to be march 1. there won't be 15 people. it's going to be a ramp-up to get those 15 clients. like in march, you might have three people enrolled. in april you may have 20.
>> commissioner loo: i'm puzzled. the number of visits provided. 135? >> 135 hours. >> commissioner loo: it's like six months -- on the yearly things, you have 840 hours? >> that's correct. again, there's an initial start-up phase. six months is january through june. the program hasn't started in january. again, it's not like they're going it start out having consumers all 15 -- >> commissioner loo: what i'm saying, six months, if whole year it's 840 hours and six months should be 420 but this is only 135, which is quite low. that's my question.
i know when you start a program, it really takes much longer to get the program started. >> right. >> president serina: what i'm hearing is that it is a slow buildup but by end of the year, they will have a great many more volunteers and clients. it's a fast ramp-up in the second half. is that correct? >> yes. >> president serina: any other comments? any questions from the public? may i have a motion to approve? >> second. >> president serina: any further debate? any opposed? smokemotion carries. item i, requesting authorization

>> there's current information we have in database form. what we're visualizing is something that goes way beyond our department and provides good resource for variety of consumers including people with disability, older adults, caregivers, the medical and health communities, faith communities and our department staff. we've been talking with people in the community about the need for this. we're really hoping it's going to be very broad-based. we have some information but what we're hoping is to have the information about our current contractors but also go way beyond that. we're looking at specifics like resources or caregiver resources
that may go beyond our current funding structure. >> commissioner knutzen: what i'm imagining a mega database resource. there's much information out there. the idea that people could go to one place, they are doing their google search forkin for someth, they direct it to one thing. >> we want it to be dynamic and comprehensive. that dynamic meaning is up to date, potentially people would understand what capacity is. >> commissioner knutzen: my thought -- there's all this wonderful information we get that you know and all of you resources we're all about trying make sure people know about them. will we always have that information? is that part of that core?
